Big Data event moved to the New Year

How do companies turn big data into insight?

The Chartered Institute of Marketing Lancashire has announced that their Big Data event planned with Blackburn College will now take place on 20 February 2017.

Dawn Holmes FCIM and Chartered Marketer will look at what Big Data is, how you get it and how you then move from having data to knowing what to act on.
Drawing on her experience as a Director at The Insight Magicians, working with clients to maximise their use of data and research to deliver true business benefit, she will share some examples of how companies have used data creatively to gain insight, and discuss methods of obtaining and exploiting data for your own organisation.

The event, sponsored by The Candidate, is titled ‘How do companies turn big data into insight?’ and is open to CIM members and non-members.

For more information or to book, please go to http://regions.cim.co.uk/events or call 01628 427340 during office hours.
